Susan and I got married on the summer solstice, the longest day, so we could celebrate for as long as possible. Thank you for bringing such warmth and beauty into my life each and every day.
Happy Anniversary to my lovely wife and best friend, Susan.
My father would go to the top of the mountains in Calabria, Italy to sing and the whole village could hear him. I returned to Calabria a few years ago to remember him and sing one of his favorite songs, 'O Sole Mio.
Wishing all the Dads and Granddads a Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Birthday to my dear friend @StevieWonder who I have had the rare pleasure of not just singing with him “for once in my life” but on several occasions — all of them a thrill.
First hearing @ladygaga sing “Lush Life” was remarkable - she put her whole life in the song and it was clear that acting would become part of her artistic legacy. Congratulations “Lady” on the Best Performance nom for @HouseOfGucciMov for the @MTVAwards. You are always the best!
